Dreamer: Inspired By a True Story is about a broken-down racehorse trainer and his broken-down racehorse. Read Kidzworld's review to find out if you should check out this new flick starring Dakota Fanning!
Dreamer - Picking Up the Broken Pieces
The Crane family
lives on the only horse farm in Kentucky that doesn't actually have a horse
in the barn. Dad (Kurt Russell) is busy working as a racehorse trainer
, mom works in a diner and Cale (Dakota Fanning) dreams of nothing more than to spend some time
with her dad. Her dream
starts to come true when one of the horses that her dad trains gets injured
in a race. Cale takes one look at Sonador
(it's Spanish for "dreamer"), nicknamed Sonya for short, and convinces her dad to nurse her back to health.
Dreamer - Dare to Dream
Cale forms a close friendship
with Sonya by bringing her cherry popsicles
and chocolate cake. When Sonya is fully healed, the Cranes realize that she can race again and dream of entering her in the Breeders' Cup Classic
. Dreamer is your typical underdog sports story
, so the ending won't shock you. But, it'll definitely pull at your heartstrings. You'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll cheer for the little girl with big dreams
of helping her dad with a broken spirit
and her horse with a broken leg.
Dreamer - Bottom Line
Like the title suggests, Dreamer is an inspiring movie
, but it also has its fair share of cheesy moments. But, we all need a little cheese
in our diets
once in awhile, so we recommend that you check out this feel-good flick
with the fam before it races out of the theater.
